SFWA president Mary Robinette Kowal said,
I have loved Nalo Hopkinson’s work since 1999 when I discovered her through the short story “Precious” in a Datlow/Windling anthology Silver Birch, Blood Moon. Each new piece continues to delight me and stretch me as a reader and makes me bolder as a writer.
Naming Nalo as Grand Master recognizes not only her phenomenal writing but also her work as an educator who has shaped so many of the rising stars of modern SFF.
The award, given for “lifetime achievement in science fiction and/or fantasy,” will be presented at the virtual SFWA Nebula Conference to be held June 4-6, 2021.
